|Self Deprivation - Mother|
«Once again, Chris Komashko releases a compelling set of sonic options to cerebrate upon. According to most dictionaries, deprivation is the loss or absence of parts, powers, or things that are needed. Is the self a part? Is the self a power? Is the self needed? In any case, listening to "Self Deprivation", you will encounter the pleasant absence of melody, familiar chords and structures. This absence can make you reflect about things that are not longer present...

|Stepping Stone - O.C.P.|
«Three/four releases a year is the average production coming out of João Ricardo's lab, making him a very busy artist and producer. Even with such a rate of releases, quality is not an issue, as João - aka Operador de Cabine Polivalente (OCP for short) always makes really interesting works. 'Stepping Stone' is one more of those works. Again, João takes the 'single piece' approach for added immersive experience...

|Pulsos Temporales Memorias Estables - Spirit Elevating Brains|
«'Pulsos Temporales Memorias Estables' is the second album from SEB here at test tube and this time he made it even bigger than the previous one. Twenty tracks of SEB's trademark 'digital nostalgia' style of clicks 'n' cuts and weird sampling. After a couple of listens, it's clear that Sebastian has been refining his sound. He's more precise and to-the-point when he tries to capture an emotional essence into a track or simply by telling us a story...

|Lilt - Entia Non|
«As promised, we're back with another excellent work from Entia Non - aka James McDougall from Australia - called 'Lilt'. Like the previous one, expect to listen to lots of juicy field recordings from australian whereabouts artfully mixed with soothing ambient tones and drones of rare beauty, and also organic backgrounds to complete. For this release, James went to capture new sounds to some well known 'sand islands' located on the eastern coast of his enormous country, namely 'Stradbroke Islan...

|Reso - Small Music|
Â«2005's last entry, ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome Yuusaku Kubota, also known as Reso. Reso has previously released two EP's for MiMi netlabel and a couple of tracks in several compilations. Reso is Japanese, and if we could tell (and we can) that there's a typical japanese sound in ambient electronica, well... this is it. Reso's ambient drones aren't really that far away from Ryoji Ikeda's low frequency signatures...

|Gordon Tebo - Adaptive Immune [tube031] - Gordon Tebo|
«And from Chicago - USA comes Gordon Tebo, a man with a very special music. Test Tube proudly presents 'Adaptive Immune', a kind of an ode to the human being, and his self-healing immune system. Gordon's music goes straight to the cells that we're made of. But don't get fooled by this apparently cold approach to his music. 'Adaptive Immune' is warm, warm like a blanket made of tiny little sound particles that tuck you in your bed at night...

|Le Sac De Sonido - A Sankip Hummad|
«When the particles of dust along a curve start floating, they carry miniscule pieces of metal, plastic, and glass. As these particles float, they reflect natural light to become visible to the human eye. In a similar way, A Sankip Hummad lifts tiny glitches, clicks, and bleeps out of their technological environment to infuse them with a special type of light and compelling traces of human memory; memories of a utopia that never existed or perhaps nostalgia for something we do not know yet...

|e:4c - Documents [tube042] - H. Vasconcelos & J. Correia|
Â«e:4c are H. Vasconcelos and J. Correia, a laptop duo from Porto, Portugal, and they build skyscrapers made of heavy pre and post-processed field recordings, cable static and general software sound generation. This is usually filed under 'experimental improvised electronics' and e:4c are obvious followers of VÃtor Joaquim, Paulo Raposo, @c and other renowned portuguese laptop experimentalists and composers, and they are extremely good at what they do...
